Hi Girls,  I'm Red and Mar Ann"s daughter.  I was thinking about your dad last week and wondering how he was doing.   You have my sincere sympathy.  I have quite a few pictures of your folks and mine from their travels and camp, etc.  I'd be happy to send you some if you give me an address.  Rest in Peace, Harry.
